4. 詹雨树 Raintree Chan（台湾 Taiwan）
My favorite character Frankenstein, consists of a combination of various objects made, inspires me to start my work in collage art.
拼贴算是一种再生，可以很任性狂妄的创造怪物，偷偷隐渡暧昧藏匿细节，我很享受这种私密的过程。直觉是我做拼贴的第一步，记忆其实一直潜伏在我的脑里，那些看过的电影画面，可能衔接着低俗小说，或是画作里的角落不协调地堆叠着，感觉像是吸血鬼闻到血的方向，很自然就知道要从哪里咬下第一口吧。喜欢A to Z和Cult Movies。
Collage Art is a process of renewable and recycled which I captivated deeply. The first step of creation starts in the memories, which are hidden in the subconscious, then follow with the instinct. Just like the vampires always know where the blood is. I am always obsessed in the category in A-Z and the absurdity of B Cult films, same as my creation, reminds of me how fascinating it is within myself.
